My PhD, from the University of Manchester, investigated the under-explored area of HIV/AIDS-related media produced for the consumption of children and young adults in Britain. Focusing on gender, childhood, sexuality, anxiety and stigma, it examined the cultural, ideological and political context of the HIV-positive identities which populated a wide variety of British children’s media and public health education from 1983-1997. Prior to my PhD, I completed a BA in politics and modern history and MA in cultural history at the University of Manchester.

Research

Currently I am a research assitant on Alex Mold's 'Placing the Public in Public Health' project and I will consider the way emotion figured in British post-war public health. I aim to examine how emotion was used in different health campaigns, how the public’s emotions were imagined and how emotion figured in the success or failure of different health initiatives.
